Affordable waterfront dining! Here you'll enjoy an amazing selection of day boat fish, fresh seafood, lobster and stone crabs, raw bar specialties and superb steaks and chops grilled to perfection! GG's Waterfront Bar & Grill is centrally located on beautiful Hollywood Beach, minutes from Ft. Lauderdale, Aventura and 15 miles from Miami. Overlooking the Intracoastal waterway with 450 feet of dock, this is a fabulous way to enjoy beautiful waterfront sunsets! Newly remodeled and updated, the interior is elegant, yet casual and comfortable. The main dining room also features views of our large, bustling open kitchen.

This is not my first time at Gigi and the repeat and play is due to the food, ambiance and quality of the food. I have never had a bad meal here, the staff is attentive and professional. Our server, Cristina was outstanding... didn't miss a beat! On Saturday's it tends to be packed for obvious reasons, location, water view, etc., but even with the wait, the staff asks you constantly if you are being helped and they understand that waiting is a pain, so they make it worth your while once you are seated. There is valet parking and a great Sunday brunch. We had the seafood tower which basically showcases Florida's seafood, fresh and yummy. The Fried Thai oysters were great too along with the seafood risotto. Nothing to complain about - only great food and ambiance. Give it a try!

Unfortunate front door Mayhem! We had an early reservation for 6:15 because we wanted to make sure to sit outside. We arrived at 6:05, the hostess tells us that our table won’t be ready before 6:20 and we should go to the bar. We decline and told her we’ll just wait. I looked outside and there are empty tables, but still we wait until 6:20. Nobody came to get us, so we asked the hostess about our table. Again we wait. Then some guy leads us to an inside table!
We told him that we had specifically asked for an outside table! We now walk back to the front reception, and wait again. Finally after all this they take us outside to the table that was available when we arrived!!! The management really need to review their hostess practices. The experience left us very frustrated and even though we liked the food, we will look at other dining options for dinner in the future.

We had a wonderful meal, superbly prepared, and fresh. We were very pleased with our seafood selections. The Tuna Poke Bowl was terrific. Swordfish was the best we have ever had as was the whole Brazino. Service was impeccable and all staff were friendly. Terrific evening !

The service was weak. Noise level way too high. Severs were not able to adequately describe entrees. Overall, it seems that staff is not concerned with quality service.

Everything was wonderful except for our table location and the noise level. We were seated next to the bar and there are 3 large tv screens. This is a lovely restaurant with water views; I don't like the tv's. Save that for sports bars with cheap and bad food. Also, the music piped in was too loud in that area. Food was delicious; service was excellent. We ordered two bottles of sparkling wine listed on the menu at $33. We were charged $46. My husband questioned the overcharge and we were told that the price of the wine changed. The restaurant honored the lower price.

I attended this restaurant with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated outside however directly in front of the doors which had a very high level of traffic. I asked right a way to change table and suggested a nearby table. I was advised that it was not possible because the table was reserved for a group of four. We were then escorted inside. Turns out, the table we wanted was NEVER used by a group of four but by a couple.....

Inside, our server was not attentive to what was going on at our table. She took our utensiles after apetizers, never brought new ones. Had to ask after she reappearred a few minutes later while our meal was getting cold. I had to pour the wine myself on several occasions while she disappeared several times. We ordered Cappuccinos. She never asked if we needed sugar which we did. She disappeared once again. After a couple minutes, had to ask another server to get it.

Great food but lousy service ! I expect a lot more than what I received for the money paid.

Have gone here 2 years in a row for our son's birthday (his favorite place for raw oysters and Alaskan King Crab legs) and they are very accommodating. Great service, very attentive staff. Food is delicious and sizable servings. Seafood is very fresh and they have very creative drinks. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal this week while on vacation, we sat overlooking the water. The waiters were attentive and prepared the food exactly to our liking. It is a "dressy atmosphere" and looks to have a fabulous, the place is always busy. Would be great for a business dinner or sit outside for a special occasion and enjoy the beautiful sunset. I had the single lobster tail and the brussels sprouts. Yum! (The only thing we didn't enjoy was the couple next to us who were discussing business very loudly but that is not the restaurant's fault). They have a variety of fresh fish as well, enjoy!
